My husband and 2 children came here for dinner during our break in Burford. It was quite quiet except for a few locals and I understand from previous reviews that some tourists have been intimidated by this, which has urged me to write my own review. I loved it! We had great banter with the bar staff who were warm,... More

Myself and 3 friends stayed for one night after playing golf at Burford golf club. The food at the Fox was really good, perhaps a tad pricey. The mews rooms were of a very high standard. The Hungarian waiter was very helpful and happy. The Fox is a good base for visiting the Cotswolds.

My business partner and I are lucky enough to get a couple of days away from our wives occasionally, and like to take full advantage of the freedom. We travel from the North West to London a lot, so we like to visit different hotels and areas. The Fox fitted our requirements for both business and fun. Firstly, it's in... More

We got married in May and the Fox Inn did our catering at Great Barrington Village Hall. We also had our reception drinks at the pub and the whole family staying in their rooms on the night of the wedding. Mel and her team did a fantastic job and I literally couldn't fault them. They went out of their way... More

This is a quintessential English country pub whose appearance promises great things. I stopped here with a friend whilst out for a drive around the Cotswolds, hoping for a decent pub lunch. The cheapest main courses on the menu were around twelve or thirteen pounds, rising to over twenty. This suggested the standard of food would be well above average... More

Came across this pub and wanted a sandwich and drink. Saturday Bank holiday lunchtime and they appeared to have some sort of musical event on. We were told that that didn't do sandwiches on a Saturday lunchtime. Main courses were in excess of £15 and we settled for a starter which consisted of a small quantity of sardine pate ,... More

I am the organiser of the Music weekend and have just read your comments. I'm sorry to hear you felt unwelcome at The Fox Inn. Although I don't work at the pub and I only organise the music on the festival weekend I have been coming to the Fox on my travels through Europe and UK for 15 years and... More

My wife and 20 year old daughter and I stayed in two rooms in late July/August for 2 nights. The bar was perfect with friendly locals including a pilot, a horse trainer and a group of siblings from the near by village. I can say I've never been so relaxed for ages and the local scenery was great. The food... More

I visited the Fox around 6 years ago and remember it being a beautiful place with a great atmosphere and outdoor seating area by the riverside. Sadly this wasn't the same place I visited yesterday. I decided to take my girlfriend for a Sunday drive and stopped off for a bite to eat. We were greeted by no-one, despite the... More

We stayed here for a local wedding and thought the location was beautiful, the rooms were lovely but I really do think it was overpriced. Breakfast was delicious, a full English which I couldn't fault and sitting out by the little stream in the sunshine was perfect. Sadly however from the moment we arrived we felt as if we were...

We were in the area, sort of lost, and in need of sustenance when we happened upon the Fox Inn. The food was not only excellent, but came speedily and was well cooked. We can especially recommend the Whitebait with Chili Mayo.
